Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tomdoglover29@aol.com




Bob Blumstein of Illinois closed the Academy Sports + Outdoors B.A.S.S. Nation Central Regional presented by Magellan Outdoors with a 5-bass limit that weighed 16-7 lbs, giving him a 3 day total of 59-2 lbs, which was more than enough to earn the individual championship at Toledo Bend.

"I caught them right there; about a 10-minute ride from here," he said motioning to a point within sight of the Cypress Bend Park launch. "It was just a magical spot."


Indiana's Chris Myers, who caught an 11-6 lb bass was the heaviest bass in the boater division. The Louisiana BASS Nation team, The Bayou State squad won the Team Championship with 135 bass over 2 days for a cumulative weight of 379-2 lbs.
